Barney is a ten year old, 13 pound, cream and white Shih Tzu.  Barney is a great dog! 

He loves to play outside and go for walks with his foster mom and two Shih Tzu foster siblings.  He isn't bothered by people or other dogs on the walks and if someone approaches to pet him he often allows it without any trouble.

Barney had one loving owner for all of his life until she recently had to move to a nursing home, and Barney could not go with her.  He transitioned through several homes in a short period of time before coming into rescue. During that time he grew anxious and fear aggressive, probably from missing his owner, being in strange surroundings, and there being no stability in his life.  During this transition time Barney was also suffering from skin allergies.  Currently, he is taking one pill a day for his allergies and is quite healthy.

Barney is a wonderful companion and likes being close by to his foster mom.  His adopter(s) will need to understand fear aggression in dogs and continue reinforcing his training for his anxiety with being touched. The ideal home for Barney would be a quiet home where someone is home most of the day and one without a lot of people coming and going.  His new family must understand how to calm an anxious dog like Barney by letting him be and allowing him to adjust to them at his pace.

Barney is neutered, current on vaccinations, microchipped, and on heart-worm and flea/tick preventive. His adoption fee is $120.00 plus $8.73 sales tax for a total of $128.73.

To meet Barney or the other dogs available for adoption from Shih Tzu Rescue of Minnesota by visiting with us from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM at the Minnetonka Petco near Ridgedale the first Saturday of every month.
